-pedic -- the most highly recommended bed in america. >>> good morning, everyone. welcome back to "cnn saturday morning." scientology is a controversial and misunderstood religion. the church is famously secretive about their practices and inner workings, which just leads to more questions. we're focusing on scientology this morning, the myths, the money and, of course, the celebrities. it seems what many people know about the church is what they hear from celebrities. actors and actresses count themselves as members. people like tom cruise. cnn has more on cruise's connection to scientology. >> reporter: when it comes to scientology, tom cruise may be the most famous defender. tearing into matt lauer over psychiatrist. >> do you know at roll, ritalin, do you know now ritalin is a street drug. >> the difference is -- >> matt, i'm asking you a question. >> i understand there's abuse of all of these things. >> no, you see, here is the problem. you don't know the history of psychiatry, i do. >> reporter: although cruise joined scientology in the 1980s over the past decade his public identification

story. our own dan lothian and dana bash, they are both standing by live. but first cnn's poppy harlow breaks down the numbers. >> hi there, wolf. i think the headline for this jobs report is disappointing. only 80,000 jobs created in the month of june. unemployment stays at 8.2%. we need to be creating somewhere between 300,000 and 400,000 jobs a month pretty consistently to bring that rate down. issues here 12.7 million americans still unemployed in this country. 5.4 million of them have been out of work for six months or longer. the longer you're out of work, the longer it takes you to find a job. that is a problem. also very key here. 2.5 million people are not counted in this unemployment rate at all. they can work, but they have stopped looking for work. so they're not counted in the unemployment rate. so it's actually higher than 8.2%. also very key here is minorities. we have to look at what has happened to african-americans. their unemployment rate has gone up for the month of may. it's now nearly 14.5%. it is pretty much double unemployment for whites, hispanics, 11% unemploy

then they fired two real bullets. an autopsy report obtained by cnn shows them entering the side of his arm, indicating chamberlain was not facing the officers or had turned away. >> so the story that the police put out that he was an ax wielding black man trying to hurt a police officer is what it is, a flat-out lie. >> reporter: chamberlain's lawyers acknowledge he did throw out a silver object. >> at that moment, a bolt cutter comes from the police officers and removes the object. so from that point forward, there's absolutely no evidence that at any time mr. chamberlain had a weapon in his hands. >> reporter: there is no way to know. the taser video suddenly cuts off before the shots are fired. so you must have thought it is ironic in sort of the terrible way that someone summoned to your father's door to help save his life, if he had been having some kind of heart emergency -- >> yes. >> reporter: -- ended up shooting him. >> yes. and they took his life. unnecessarily. they didn't have to. >> reporter: chamberlain's niece wants to know why police couldn't defuse the confrontation and w
